Peter Mulvey – On The Way Up lyrics

On the way up - I felt clean
Driving along in a waking dream
The rollingest hills I'd ever seen
Felt like the best me I'd ever be
On the way up I just knew
The night before I'd been good and true
And honest and brave and over you
It was the easiest thing to do

But I'm going down
I'm going down to where my demons are
I'm going down
I'm going down
Wave if you see me from afarI'm going down
On your way up

On your way up, understandI'm going down
I wish I'd put so much more in your hand
The better pat of this heart's bitter land
I swear there is more here than sand

On your way up, think of me
I'll think of you I guess that we'll think of we
And you will always mean what you mean to me
I hope one day we'll look back and see

But I'm going down
I'm going down to where my angels live
I'm going down
Please, remember; please, forgive
